    How do I know if I'm not actually mentally ill?

    What if my mom was right and it's just all in my head and I'm scaring myself into thinking I have these problems when really I'm just very creative and bored and want to seem special or unique? I don't understand how to know if what I experience is legitimate or not. Whenever I...

    The people in my school are terrible people.

    They act like their your friend over a text message and when you get to school they want nothing to do with you. They play with your emotions. They are bad examples. I have truly never met anyone like these people. I moved to the school two years ago. They don't let you be you...

    My friends think this guy likes me cause he

    always looks at me, comes up to talk to me and only me, and is constantly touching me. Thing is, he has told me who he likes. So, I'm kinda confused. I'm pretty sure he only sees me as a really good friend. What do you think?

    Do we really have to express it at times

    when we're angry? I usually don't, and it has just stacked up for a long time that it's making me feel so distressed. I also noticed I get mad easily lately.
